CAS-ual Fridays: Snips, Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

 I'm doing a big happy dance today!  It's Friday and I'm heading off with my sister-in-laws, Laura and Cindy and my dear friend, Candice, for a scrapbooking/card making weekend.  Can't wait to go!  

But...before I go, it's time for another challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.  Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamps and they have all kinds of fabulous crafty goodness.  Be sure to play along for a chance to win their gift certificate!



Our challenge this week is to make a card for a boy/guy.  Although I have lots of little guys at our house, I needed a thank you card for a guy co-worker.  So...I went to the CAS-ual Fridays Big Thanks set and had a lot of fun making this card.

And...another guy card to share too!  Michele is sharing this card over on the CAS-ual Fridays blog today. This one using the WTF set...perfect for a guy!

Come play along...looking forward to seeing how you are inspired!

Yesterday I've made a birthdaycard for my brother in law. Unfortunately, no CAS card. But I'll have to make another masculine card. Thanks for the inspiration!

Your man-cards are awesome! My BIL turns 50 this month, and I'm thinking I really need those WTF stamps to make a card. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Oh I hope you have FUN this weekend! My day off is spending cleaning, but all for a good cause because my two sisters are visiting me tomorrow and Sunday! Your masculine cards are perfect, I love the clean lines coupled with the the bubbles in the first. Great use of the stamp set.
